I am very annoyed about writing my password again and again. There should be a remember me tickbox below the password textbox. Can this feature be added soon?
My new signature: :D :)

I posted a 'temporary' workaround this some time ago, for me it's been doing the trick for well, 1-2 years now.

Although the tool is now offline, the code it generated can still be found in the topic: http://nevereal.net/community/topic/95
Just change «snipped» 1 to your username in quotes (" and "). Then change «snipped» 2 to your 8-bit hex encoded string. You can use this tool http://codebeautify.org/string-hex-converter to do that. If you have trust issues (that site doesn't send out any network requests though, that's why I picked it) do it yourself through http://www.asciitable.com/, take each letter from your password, then look in the "Hx" column, and put that in one string. So for example if your password would be "12ab" what you should put in the bookmark is "31326162".
Then bookmark the code, and click it to login.

Far from ideal, even slightly a security risk (since anybody smart that has free access to your computer could 'unencrypt' your password), but it's definitely practical xD.
Finally a new signature.

What would they possibly do here though? "Troll" us by pretending to be Nafees and bring conversation to this dead forum? Upload more games? Oh dear, I can see that being a security problem :P

Well, some people tend to reuse passwords. Rest assured, your password is actually pretty safely stored on the NR servers (very safe compared to most sites). But in this bookmark it's basically one step better than storing it in plaintext. (I'm not storing it in plaintext to avoid accidentally revealing it through the popup.)

I just found out a way to solve this. Use http://www.nevereal.net/login to login and it will remember the password. :)

Yes it is; I've been looking at ways of making it safer as well.
